The truth of it is questionable, but I think I've read that Anton LaVay acquired the rights to Freaks, and then put it into the public domain.

Thats one of those obscure stories ...

It might be that Mr. LaVay was obsessed by this movie .. but there is no indication that he ever owned the copyright on it
On the other hand doing something so unique like putting a movie into public domain without telling anybody about it dosn´t make any sense at all (do good and talk about it)
There is only one source on the whole internet who is selling this story...
and last but not least ... being pd for about 20 years now without being recognized by any of the major pd distributors makes this story even more unbelievable
